The hunt that started it all. Long before Deer Creek Lodge became known worldwide as a bird hunter’s paradise, our whitetail hunting was a closely held secret among the international big-game elite. Why? Giant deer. And lots of them. Here, 170+-class whitetails are common in our private deer sanctuary, with serious opportunities to join the Pope & Young ranks. What’s more, this hunt’s flat-out affordable, making it an attractive option for hunters looking to break into the P&Y books without breaking the bank. To ensure quality, we limit the number of archers to just 8 people per hunt on our whitetail property, located a short 25-minute drive from our Whitetail Lodge.


All packages are priced per person. A maximum of 8 people are permitted per hunt. Each day includes:

  • Morning and afternoon hunts
  • Fair-chase opportunities to harvest 1 trophy buck and 1 doe deer; 120-minimum gross score
  • Multiple stand locations per hunter
  • Guides
  • Field transportation
  • Care of game
  • 1 night’s lodging
  • 3 meals
    • Continental breakfast at the lodge
    • Box lunch prepared the night before, for you to enjoy in the woods or in an onsite camper
    • Gourmet dinner at the lodge
  • Cocktails and hors d’oeuvres

Rates do not include licenses, airport transfers, or gratuities. (A 10-20% gratuity is suggested.)

Lodge exclusivity is available for large groups; contact us for details.

Reservation and Cancellation Policy: A nonrefundable deposit of 50% is required to confirm your reservation. The balance is due upon departure.  Should you find it necessary to change your reservation more than 60 days before your hunt, we will gladly apply your deposit to another available date within the same season, or you may have someone participate in your place. TRIP INSURANCE IS HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.
